16/9/20

 

16/9/20 The Currane drifters had a hard day of it and for good reason, there was little wind to talk off, plus it was very humid at 91% followed by bright sunshine at times. So, one can say without any fear of contradiction, the Currane fly anglers are completely exonerated this day, need I say more! Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.1 centigrade.

13/9/20

 13/9/20 The Currane Drifters were in a quandary this wild day and for good reason, there was a strong Southwest wind blowing, as you can imagine it makes it more difficult to manipulate your flies, especially when your boat drifts towards those submerged rocks as you get that crunchy feeling, I will leave the rest to your imagination. In the Salmon department all quiet on the Southwest front. On the World-Famous Butler Pool there were two fly anglers’ manipulating their flies, no reports as of yet. Wind as already stated, reasonable cloud cover and humidity at 82%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

12/9/20

12/9/20 Again the Currane fly drifters were in good form in the Sea Trout and Brown Trout department. On the World-famous Butler pool there were 3 Anglers manipulating their Salmon flies, but as of yet my mobile is slack, so I take it the anglers in question had slacklines? Wind Southwest light with good cloud cover, humidity 83%.Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.5 centigrade.

10/9/20

 10/9/20 I stand corrected and guilty as charged for failing miserably in my duties for not checking my texts properly yesterday, so my apologies, so let us put the record straight. Well for starters, the Currane fly anglers caught a few nice Sea Trout on the drift. In the Salmon department there was a fine Salmon caught on the troll. On today’s notes all quiet on the Western front in all departments? Do not be surprised if I update today’s notes in tomorrow’s notes and I will be disappointed if I do not have to update.

8/9/20

                            Anthony McGillicuddy RIP
 

8/9/20 I start with the sad news that the Currane Anglers and the good  people of Waterville have lost a great Taxi Driver Mr. Anthony McGillicuddy RIP, who I might add, took many a Currane Angler to their favourite restaurant after their day’s fishing and brought them back to their B+B or hotels and homes after their night out, I can say without any fear of contradiction he will surely be missed. So, on behalf of the Currane anglers and the good people of Waterville and Kerry and the good people afar, our sincere sympathies to his good Wife Cora and all the Family and friends. Well Anthony you may be gone but you certainly will not be forgotten as you make your way on the Heavenly highway to Heaven. RIP

 

The Currane anglers were in good form with a nice few Sea Trout caught on the drift today. Now we head for the world famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  It was reported to me that there was one Salmon caught on the fly. Now we head for the upper Lakes, just for the record there has some fine action in the Trout department, plus a few rod benders in the Salmon department. On the River Inny department there was a nice flood coming down at lunch time, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know the majority of the Currane Anglers had their catch and release Inny hats on this day, how many caught, that is the question? Wind Southwest light and overcast, humidity 98%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.

2/9/20

 

2/9/20 Lough Currane maybe on the dirty side but in the last few days there have been a nice few Juniors caught on the drift, in the Salmon department we head for the World famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  and for good reason, on Sunday 30th there were two Salmon caught on the fly, the following day, there were 3 caught, also on the fly, which I might add is great to see. On today’s action, all quiet on all fronts? That includes the Inny. Wind West light and overcast all day with misty rain through the day and just for the record there was a small flood on the Inny and when I say small, I mean small, going by what I saw at midday. Wind as already stated, humidity 97%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

1/9/20

 

1/9/20 May be old news but very interesting on the last big flood and why it is taking so long for Lough Currane to clean up, for starters there were big landslides and Copal Lake is still dirty because of this, so low and behold one of the reasons why the Big Lake is still dirty and not forgetting the Big Floods from the Upper Lakes going into the Commeragh, so it  may take a few more days ?  Going by the forecast there is more rain tomorrow, how much that is the question. On today’s manipulations all quiet on all fronts and just for the record there were four boats out on this calm day, wind South Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 86%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.
